As composer-in-residence at Handel & Hendrix House in London, Cevanne initiated a collaboration between Chris Montague, Calum Gourlay and artist Maya Ramsay with the support of PRSF.
The three musicians write in response to Maya’s wall-rubbings of Hendrix’s wallpaper, WALL OF SOUND. Its wood chip texture created dots on music manuscript, from which the musicians derived clusters of notes to create a full album.
They premièred their work-in-progress at the London Jazz Festival 2015, Southbank, and opened Hendrix’s restored flat to the public in London 2016, alongside BAFTA winning-actress Jessica Hynes.
They are currently recording the repertoire for release this year.
